ARRL Receives Archive Set of The DX Bulletin
Jim Cain, K1TN, has donated an archive-quality set of the first 325 The DX Bulletin to the ARRL. Organized in binders, the collection will be housed in the ARRL Library and available to anyone who wants to come in to ARRL Headquarters and read them. Written and published weekly from July 1979-February 1986 by Cain -- and carried on by Chod Harris, VP2ML until 1996 -- The DX Bulletin was a devoted to news of interest to DXers worldwide, with about 2000 subscribers around the world. Cain told the ARRL that most of the bulletins were produced using an electric typewriter before he “computerized;” issue 260 was the first issue published using a computer, a Radio Shack TRS-80 from the Tandy Corporation.
